Catalytic converter thefts have become a major problem across the country leaving no vehicle safe from thieves -- not even the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile.

Thieves took a bite out of the iconic hot dog vehicle over the weekend in Las Vegas, swiping the catalytic converter from underneath as it was parked overnight in a hotel parking lot. Thieves target the part, which they saw off, because they can illegally sell the metal for thousands of dollars. The Weinermobile had to be towed to a garage where it was given a temporary catalytic converter.
